Driver in 2009 fatal alcohol-related car crash encourages teen drivers to make safer choices

As a montage of news footage from the accident played on theater-sized projector screens, Melissa Daddio sat in the front row, listening to her own voice narrate the most regrettable moment of her life. The auditorium at Indian Rocks Christian School was silent Thursday morning, except for Daddio's soft sobs from the video playing through the speakers — and her even softer cries as she watched from her seat, perhaps only a day away from a years-long prison sentence. The mini-documentary and her appearance at the school was a moment of relived grief for Daddio, who as a teen driver in February 2009 killed her boyfriend.
